Donald Henry Baran
October 18, 1939 to October 7, 2020

After six years of declining health, Don died happily at home, exactly as he wished.

His last meal was one of his favorites. Breakfast.

He was surrounded by his loved ones and also chatted with others he held dear in his heart; All while watching baseball and enjoying a slushy, as well as, an Oreo cookie with milk.

As he rested, he said he was having a homecoming party. We are sure there was quite the welcome home in heaven!

Beloved husband of Joyce for 33 years and deeply cherished father of Eve (Bryan), Jeanne (Kenny), Jeff (Kris), Julie (Mikey),  and James (Rachael).  Proud “G-Pa” to 13 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.  Dear Uncle to many.

Don was a native of Chicago, IL. He was the son of Chester and Arlette Baran; brother to Henry, Joe, and the late Richard.

Don was a great man who had a heart of gold. A Missouri Military Academy Alumni and United States Air Force Veteran who was stationed in Japan.  He loved life, his family, his friends, the arts, music, Japanese culture, good food, and his forever present, sweet tooth.

He always had a smile on his face. He will be missed tremendously.
